The Space

I have a sleeping alcove with single bed available for rent in my spacious, serene, beautifully furnished apartment. If a couple, I rent my bedroom with queen-size bed and I take the alcove. Located one block from Sutton Place, it is close to public transportation (5 short blocks to subways and 2 short blocks to buses) and the well-known stores along 57th Street plus restaurants, food markets, banks, museums, Carnegie Hall and Broadway. Lincoln Center is just a quick ride away. It is truly in the middle of it all! Fresh linens provided, large closet space, 24-hour doorman in elevator building (they are the Best!), Wi-Fi, Flat-screen TV and well-appointed kitchen. I enjoy sharing my home and welcoming people to fabulous New York City! Minimum 3 days. $115 per day. Non-smoker and no pets please. Hope to see you soon!!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I've been at Penny's home for two weeks and it was a great experience! The house is very welcoming and was always very clean and tidy. I felt like I was in my house... And Penny is a very friendly and very easy to get along person. She was always willing to help when I needed it, and invited me to go with her to Zumba classes! I loved it! I will definitely stay at her house when I return to New York!

  • This was my second stay at Penny's and i would definitely come back. Her responses are very quick, the communication is great, the location is absolutely in the middle of everything you need in Manhattan. The apartment was spotless and, as before - spacious, cosy and a real "home away from home". Thanks very much for your hospitality Penny, it's a pleasure to be your guest.

  • This was my third stay with Penny. As always, it was fantastic in every way. Along with providing a very comfortable, home away from home, place to stay, she's so generous with her extensive knowledge of NYC. She knows so much about the city in ways you won't find out about in guidebooks or web sites. Thanks Penny!

  • Lachie and I stayed with Penny for 2 great weeks. In that time she was a very accommodating & helpful host. The apartment was clean, warm and only a 3 minute walk to Lexington station!! We felt very safe and would happily stay with Penny again.

  • I had an amazing time in NY. Penny's flat was well located and very comfortable. Penny was welcoming, considerate and helpful.

  • Penny was a terrific host, welcoming and communicative. She has a busy life in New York but made time to chat when I wanted that and left me alone when that was appropriate. She made French Press coffee every morning, and fed me the final morning--wonderfully welcome but unexpected. She helped me find local bus stops and made practical suggestions. There's a building elevator and helpful doormen. Subway (Lex) 3 blocks, crosstown bus 2 blocks.

  • Penny is a very lovely person, and a SURVIVOR. Her house is clean, calm and nicely decorated. The location is just great. It was only a 15 min walking to the UN building. I will definitely advise all my friends to stay there during their visits to New York. And I really hope to meet Penny again. Chantal :)

  • Penny is the best! This is my second stay with Penny and it was wonderful in all respects. Penny goes out of her way to help you with anything you need during your stay. Her place is really comfortable, like a home away from home. She's a lovely person with a great sense of humor. Thanks Penny!

I am a real estate broker - (website hidden)
I am from Alabama and Louisiana originally but adopted New York City when I moved here ( as soon as I could after finishing college at University of Alabama). I love this city - the diversity, the banquet of arts, the energy and the embrace by New York of all cultures. My interests go to the arts - both fine and applied. And I love having people over.
